Summary:

Like a thick, rich, fudgy frosting straight from the shelf-stable jar, this spread melts with ease to be drizzled atop your fruit or dessert of choosing. The consistency is rich, but the flavor is more of a semi-sweet than dark, and the sharpness of the agave overpowers the cocoa depth a bit.

Now that the demand for dairy-free chocolate bars is nearing fulfillment, we’re ready for more chocolaty indulgences sans dairy. One of my most recent finds is Emmy’s Chocolate Sauce. It’s indulgent, yet wholesome. Made simply with organic raw agave, organic raw cacao powder, organic vanilla bean, and himalayan crystal salt.

Tasting Notes for Emmy’s Chocolate Sauce

According to the label, I was sampling the Original Dark, though I found the flavor to be more of semi-sweet. Due to the sharpness of the agave nectar, it slightly overpowers the cocoa depth. I’d love it if they reduced the sweetener a smidgen and possibly even cut it with maple syrup to mellow.

That said, the sweetness makes Emmy’s Chocolate Sauce a great option for using as a pastry filling (dairy-free chocolate croissants anyone?)! As well as adding natural sweetness to smoothies, or spreading on cupcakes or bars that could use a bright pop of flavor.

In addition, Emmy’s Chocolate Sauce melts with ease perfect for drizzling atop your favorite fruit or dessert. We went all out with dairy-free, gluten-free brownie sundaes!
